As the Special Assistant to the Governor of Enugu State on Youth Affairs, Comrade Johnpaul Anih celebrates his birthday on 4th August 2020, Hon. Simon Ede writes;
Legends are not born great, they achieve greatness .
Distinction, brilliance, excellence, empathy, humanity and extraordinary trait are the characters of legends, so are you, Johnpaul Anih.
Though not born great but you were divinely set up for greatness, a legend in making.
Specially gifted with extra-ordinary brilliance and sonorous feminine voice with perchant for details, a master of the airwaves.
You are so infectious, courageous and daring, and above all, you are compassionate and sacrificial.
You are an eagle, a rare kind of human.
No wonder, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the Executive Governor of Enugu State easily spotted you and appointed you as one of his Aides notwithstanding oppositions.
You are committed to the common good, no wonder you pioneered the establishment of Coal City Youth Development Initiative, a youth advocacy movement committed to enthroning credible leadership and excellence in governance. A platform that has given voices to the oppressed and less privileged members of the society.
As you celebrate your birth memorial today, I join your family, friends, associates and Well-wishers to wish you more years of exploits and glorious testimonies.
Hon. Simon Ede .
